UNU-IIGH Enhances Health Policy and System Research Capacities in the Global South

WHO-TDR Implementation Research Regional Training Center, MOOCs and short courses that target public health research and implementers in LMICs.

The United Nations University International Institute for Global Health (UNU-IIGH) is part of the Malaysian Global Health Consortium that established the WHO-TDR Regional Training Centre for Implementation Research, in collaboration with the University of Malaya and the Institute of Health Systems Research. This initiative has successfully run massive online courses and mentorship programs, significantly enhancing the research capabilities of public health researchers and implementers across low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) to generate and utilise evidence. These efforts aim to produce evidence-based health policy ensuring sustainable and culturally appropriate interventions.
